Abstract

Over the past decade, efforts to define, build, and improve palliative care and care for complex chronic illness have been commonplace at both the micro- or organizational- and macro- or healthcare organization, payment, and regulatory policy-levels. Having grown largely out of the hospice movement, palliative care for many represents all that hospice does so well, and by extending hospice's reach offers a promise of comfortable and compassionate care earlier in the disease process than hospice is often able to.
